Suzanne Stecker, MA, MFA

creative director, entrepreneur, media guru, researcher, teacher

Suzanne Stecker is the owner and creative director of Design Actually, a media design company, with a deep commitment to their worldwide services since 1999. Areas of expertise include but not limited to visual communications, marketing strategies, and witty solutions.

Suzanne's completion of a Master of Arts in Publications Design in 2000 and current pursuit of a Master of Fine Arts in Integrated Design gives her the academic training to bolster her 15+ years of hands-on experience.

As a graphic designer, photographer, web developer, copywriter, and video producer, Suzanne can cover all bases when needed and is known to be skilled in both one-on-one and team management. She also has the ability to see past the design and explore the message of every project.

Her curiosity becomes a continuum of passion in visual language and communication studies as there is so much potential for concepts underlying experiments when sampled in digital media.
